WordPress will be 10 years old in May. Yeah, this is a little bit early, but we really love WordPress and don’t mind starting the party early. If you’ve been around the internet for very long, you know that 10 years in the internet is like a billion years in the real world.
In the last 10 years WordPress has gone from nothing to running 65% of the top million websites on the internet. Builtwith.com has some fascinating statistics on WordPress and the other major content management systems used today. Besides having the largest installed base, WordPress also is on the receiving side of most conversions from the other platforms (ie. Joomla, Blogger, Drupal). In other words many more people are converting to WordPress from other CMS’ than are converting from WordPress. More stats here: http://trends.builtwith.com/cms
Happy 10th Birthday WordPress!
